Swedish Flower Power

It may be that the Dries Van Noten engineered floral collection for Spring 2008 has influenced a floral revival of sorts. Celia Birtwell has a small collection at Express, Liberty prints are still climbing the fashion charts…could we be looking at a full-on Laura Ashley revival anytime soon?

The floral theme has successfully “branched out” into many of the newly released textile and wallpaper collections, pushing aside the many seasons of stripes, dots and damasks that have dominated for quite a while. In mid-September Sandberg will be launching Gloria, a collection of nine patterns that features four very striking florals. Here’s a sneak peek at these new wallpapers.

Gloria

Gloria, above is a blossoming vine pattern available either as a full-color print,
as shown, or a tone-on-tone outline.

Boris

Boris is a stylized floral that borrows a bit from Arts & Crafts
and a bit from the ’70s in seemingly equal measur
e.

 

Francis

Francis is a striking single-color leaf pattern that feels ever-so-slightly retro.

 

Heidi

Definitely a statement wallpaper, Heidi fills the space with multi-colored blossoms.
